The report has things backwards—Britain waging political, propaganda, and economic war on Russia, along with Washington and their rogue allies, not the other way around.
The UK Daily Mail reported on Tory MP Bob Seely’s fake news, falsely claiming Vladimir Putin “use[s] hackers, trolls, paid protesters and misinformation as part of an attempt to destabilize the West,” said the broadsheet.
We’ve heard it all before too many times to recall, a steady Russia bashing drumbeat, falsely blaming the Kremlin for all sorts of things it had nothing to do with—regimes in Washington and London the lead offenders, along with Israel compromising the real axis of evil.
Russia is on the right side of major geopolitical issues, cooperating with other nations, not bullying and/or attacking them the way the above axis of evil countries and their rogue allies do repeatedly.
Seeley lied claiming Russia uses multiple tools of state power to interfere abroad. Baloney!
He lied saying Kremlin warfare strategy will threaten Britain for many years to come—more baloney!
He lied claiming, “From fake news aimed at Europe to the propaganda of RT, and from the occupation of Crimea to the streets of Salisbury, Russia is waging a very modern kind of conflict on the West—as well as on the Russian people themselves”—malarkey!
He lied saying “Putin’s tactics owe much to the ‘active measures’ practiced by the KGB during the Cold War, subverting truth to undermine our faith in our institutions. He seeks to demoralize and divide us”—more malarkey!
He lied claiming, “The coming years will test our resilience in multiple ways”—pure rubbish!
He lied saying Putin and other Kremlin officials believe democratic values are “antithetical” to Russia—utter nonsense!
Seeley considers himself a (self-styled) expert in so-called “contemporary Russian conflict.” He’s a neocon Russophobic hatemonger, an extremist, a bad actor.
His laundry list of fabricated accusations against Moscow are tired old canards, long ago exposed as Big Lies, not a shred of evidence supporting them.
Russia threatens no one. Its security is menaced by Washington, Britain and their rogue partners in high crimes of war and against humanity—not the other way around.
Despite no evidence supporting countless phony accusations against Russia, they’re repeated ad nauseam, regurgitated by media scoundrels, risking something much more serious ahead—unthinkable East/West confrontation if things go too far.
